Gold is considered valuable in Kochi and in many other parts of India for various reasons including the following:
- Value: Gold’s monetary value mostly tends to rise in the long-term, though it may fluctuate in the short term, making it a top choice for long-term investments in gold. Gold generally is only marginally affected by economic or geopolitical turmoil, thereby providing high liquidity and easy trading in times of emergencies. It serves as a hedge against inflation and also as a great portfolio enhancer investors.
- Tradition: Gold has been used for financial transactions since centuries. In the Indian traditions, this precious metal has been passed down through ages as a blessing and valuable possession, which prevails even today.
- Metal’s versatility: Gold, available in several forms, makes for a versatile and useful investment. It is popularly available as jewellery and can also be held in form of coins, or gold bars. Moreover, it is also used in edible form and is woven into fabrics in some places.
- Gold reserves: In many countries, gold is maintained as reserves to back paper currencies, which then attain their value based on the available gold reserves. Gold reserves are also held by India’s Central Bank. It is against these reserves, referred to as store value, that the Indian currency is printed and accordingly circulated in the country. Besides this, the reserves act as security for amounts which are due to trading partners or depositors.
- Limited supply: The limited amount of gold available around the world makes it rare and hence quite valuable. The gold ore takes decades to form and is a non-renewable metal, which allows us to mine and produce only a specific amount of the precious metal. Due to this, gold has more value as a scarce and irreplaceable asset.
- Industrial uses: Although, not comparable to gold’s retail consumption, Gold is used for various manufacturing and production processes in a number of industries.
